Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies (i.e., students, alumni, employers of our students, and faculty of the program), including being able to:
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology (EEET) program at the University of Akron has as its primary educational objective to produce technically capable graduates who within five years of graduation, will demonstrate:
- the fundamental knowledge and problem-solving skills to be productive as individual and team contributors in an electrical/electronic engineering technology career field.
- a commitment to accountability, attention to detail, and reliability.
- written and verbal communication skills developed in a broad-based university education.
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program, including:
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly‐ defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly‐defined technical and non‐technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes;
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) program‐specific criteria
- the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems;
- the application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems;
- the ability to analyze, design, and implement one or more of the following: control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;
- the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) systems; and
- the ability to utilize differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the performance of electrical/electronic systems.
